Transfiguration of the Lord Print E-mail

transfiguration.jpgSunday, August 6th

 

The Transfiguration of Christ is the culminating point of His public life, as His Baptism is its starting point, and His Ascension its end.

About a week after His sojourn in Cæsarea Philippi, Jesus took with him Peter and James and John and led them to a high mountain apart, where He was transfigured before their ravished eyes. 

This dazzling brightness which emanated from His whole Body was produced by an interior shining of His Divinity. False Judaism had rejected the Messias, and now true Judaism, represented by Moses and Elias, the Law and the Prophets, recognized and adored Him, while for the second time God the Father proclaimed Him His only-begotten and well-loved Son. By this glorious manifestation the Divine Master, who had just foretold His Passion to the Apostles (Matthew 16:21), and who spoke with Moses and Elias of the trials which awaited Him at Jerusalem, strengthened the faith of his three friends and prepared them for the terrible struggle of which they were to be witnesses in Gethsemani, by giving them a foretaste of the glory and heavenly delights to which we attain by suffering.

Feast of Saint Ann Print E-mail

Day of Prayer for Polish Mountaineers.

Sunday, July 29th

Devotion and Procession at 3:00 PM. Pilgrimage of Recovering Alcoholics.

 

In the Scriptures, Matthew and Luke furnish a legal family history of Jesus, tracing ancestry to show that Jesus is the culmination of great promises. Not only is his mother’s family neglected, we also know nothing factual about them except that they existed. Even the names Joachim and Ann come from a legendary source written more than a century after Jesus died.

The heroism and holiness of these people, however, is inferred from the whole family atmosphere around Mary in the Scriptures. Whether we rely on the legends about Mary’s childhood or make guesses from the information in the Bible, we see in her a fulfillment of many generations of prayerful persons, herself steeped in the religious traditions of her people.

Zmarł O. Marian Załęcki Print E-mail

O. Marian Załęcki18 września 2006 roku w wieku 71 lat zmarł ksiądz O. Marian Załęcki, kapłan Zakonu Ojców Paulinów z Sanktuarium Matki Bożej Częstochowskiej w Doylestown w Pensylwanii. Msza pogrzebowa została odprawiona 21 września przez biskupa pomocniczego z Archidiecezji Filadelfijskiej - Joseph’a McFadden’a.

Ojciec Marian Załęcki urodził się w Woli Wrzeszczowskiej w Polsce 18 grudnia 1935 roku. Pochodził z wielodzietnej pobożnej rodziny. Do zakonu Ojców Paulinów wstąpił 3 września 1953 roku. Pierwsze śluby zakonne złożył 14 września 1954 roku. Święcenia kapłańskie otrzymał na Jasnej Górze w Polsce 29 czerwca 1962 roku. Po święceniach został skierowny i przybył do Stanów Zjednoczonych. W 1971 roku pojechał do Rzymu na dwa lata gdzie uzyskał licencjat z wiedzy teoretycznej, następnie zaś doktorat z mariologii na Uniwersytecie w Dayton, Ohio. Pomimo swojego wykształcenia był zawsze kapłanem dla ludzi. Przez 40 lat służył jako kapłan zakonny. Podczas Mszy Żałobnej wspominał księdza Joe Borek – przewodniczący dywizji z filadelfijskiej "World Apostolate of Fatima". Według Joe Borka miłość do Matki Boskiej była następną po uwielbieniu, jakim darzył Papieża Jana Pawła II. Znaczącym jest również fakt śmierci księdza w dniu święta Św. Stanisława Kostki, również czciciela Matki Boskiej.
